Patiences

Scanning the Miscellaneous Jurisdictions is turning out to be a more difficult job than expected. In their original form most of these documents are legible, but in some cases once scanned the images become difficult to read. In many cases the solution is easy…simply darken light pages using a copy machine… then scan the copy. Sometimes the document has to be copied several times at various exposures to get a quality copy. If (and fortunately this hasn’t happened yet) we cannot create a good image by scanning a copy, we will re-create the document on a word processor…then scan it. There are only about seven hundred Miscellaneous Jurisdictions. It may seem difficult to believe…but over all, the 160,000 Registered Land documents we just finished scanning were in better condition than the Miscellaneous Jurisdictions…It is obvious that the key with this project is being patient.
